St. Nicholas Day Tradition in Poland

In Poland on the 6th December we celebrate St. Nicholas Day. St. Nicholas was a bishop mainly known for anonymous gifts giving to the poor. On that day we give presents especially to children.
In our town – Sochaczew in the centre of Poland we also celebrated St. Nicholas Day. In the morning that day the main square in the town was crowded with a group of motorcyclists with their motorbikes. These people are real fans of this means of transport. Some of them have very old bikes even from the 2nd World War. On that day they showed their generosity and love to all the children. Dressed up as Santa Claus they were giving sweet gifts to all passing children in the streets in our town. Thanks to generous sponsors they could visit poor families, a children’s home and sick children in hospital in Sochaczew.
